Leaving the city for nature

The Trade-Off
dandelion_babyBy Laura Geiger
Six months ago, our family of five moved from bustling Toronto to a rural eleven acres just under an hour outside of the city. In the same move, my two older children, aged four and seven, left their public alternative school and began a life of unschooling.

Debra’s Backyard Play Space

I have known Debra since we both rented apartments in the same neighborhood in the city of Toronto. Our daughters became best friends when they joined my first outdoor playgroup. (This was also the start of Activekidsclub.com)

Today we both live in houses in a different area in the city and Debra has created quite a haven for both kids and adults. Debra also runs an outdoor playgroup in a neighborhood called The Beach.

Outdoor Heaven: Create an outdoor play space

Creating a great outdoor space for kids and adults is one of the first ways to make sure your kids and you spend more time outdoors. There are many ways to go in the process of creating an outdoor space for both; this can be done in an ECE (Early Childhood Education) setting as well as in a family setting.

Biking a part of our family life

One of the many great gifts my father gave me in life was biking. It’s not because we considered ourselves hardcore bikers, we mainly used the bike as way to get around in the city and to go for family trips together.

I think I have always owned a bike in my life. Not because it was green or it was the healthy living thing to do, it was just an easy and fun way to get around that made me happy. It still makes me happy and it is always great when we are together on a family outing.

I hope your family is enjoying biking as much as we do. Our community of parents has been wonderful to share their reviews about gear and bike trailer/bike seats. (Please notice that none of these posts are sponsored)
